Four teenagers allegedly broken into a chicken coop and killed four hens with catapults.

The youngsters allegedly jumped through a bramble hedge when they were disturbed by a dog walker, leaving their bikes at the scene.

Police are now trying to track down the four boys in the picture to speak to them about the incident at River Bourne Community Farm in Laverstock, Wiltshire, on September 11.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: ‘This has understandably caused shock and distress for not only the owners of the farm but also the wider community.
